Sarah Coyne: Long trip requires preparation
For the first time, my little family is about to embark on a cross-country vacation. We've made quick road trips here and there, but this summer will mark our induction into the airplane-flying, beach-going, more-than-weekending club. And we're terrified.
Reading can become a great summer habit with right suggestions
Reading is part of daily activities for Shanon Cooper and her children Kaya and Kohl. The three were at Joplin Public Library Tuesday to pick out a few new books -- Kaya, 8, had her eye on a series of books about fairies and Kohl, 10, had a few football stories chosen.

James Billings held onto his vision for revamping the children's department at Christian Church of Carl Junction for several years. Last month it became reality, thanks in large part to Marv Dahmen, a deacon at the church whose artistic talents were put to the test.
